Testimony and videos presented to jurors indicated Strong was familiar with operational details of Wright's prostitution, chatting via Skype before and after her appointments and watching the sexual encounters from his office 100 miles up the coast in Thomaston. Before each tryst, Wright took time to make sure the Skype video camera was hidden and pointed at the massage table where the encounters took place.
Law enforcement officials said the prostitution took place at Wright's home, office and Zumba studio.
But all of the evidence presented during the trial focused on her rented office, where law enforcement officers seized video equipment, computers, condoms and other items.
Even as lurid details emerged in the courtroom, Strong's wife of 30 years and several other family members remained seated several rows behind him to show support.
One thing that was missing from the trial was testimony from Wright's accused clients. Eighteen of them were on the state's list of witnesses, but none of them testified after attorneys stipulated that the encounters took place.
The judge previously dismissed 46 invasion-of-privacy counts that stemmed from videotaping of prostitution clients without their knowledge.
The prostitution charges and ensuing publicity came as a shock in Kennebunk, a town of 10,000 that borders Kennebunkport, home to the Bush family's Walker's Point summer compound.
The verdict in the delay-plagued trial came more than six weeks after the start of jury selection, which was halted twice because of legal action that went to the state supreme court, leaving potential jurors in limbo for weeks.
